As you can tell from the title, yesterday was a very big day! We left our room in the morning and headed to Salt Lake City, picked up my sister at her home and headed to IKEA! So excited! The nearest IKEA to our home in Early is Minneapolis - a four hour drive. This will be only my second trip to the amazing Swedish wonderland! It was Erin's first trip and she is now hooked as well! We both bought lamps! A table lamp for her dorm room and a floor lamp for my living room! Can't wait to assemble (hee, hee) and enjoy it!
After IKEA, we caught a quick bite at Arby's (yuck, fast food). But, we were in a hurry because we had to get to the movie event of the decade! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2! We bought our tickets weeks ago and have been waiting in anticipation every since! The truth finally comes out about my favorite character - Severus Snape! I always knew that deep down he was good - from the very first book. When I read the final book, I was sooo happy! (Not about his demise but about the truth)
And, how do you end a perfect day? A trip to the Cheesecake Factory, of course!
One piece of Salt Lake City history that Kerry passed along....this is where the very first KFC was!
Today we leave for home...sigh...I will probably not write tonight...it will be a huge day of traveling. All the way across Wyoming (ugh!) and part of Nebraska. The plan is to end up in Kearney tonight. Have a great day everyone!
